AbstractThis thesis examines the impact of unsafe sexual practices, social isolation, and lack of access to menstrual products in homeless women. A literature review was chosen to identify and summarize findings related to the reproductive healthcare needs in the homeless women population. The literature reviewed in this paper consisted of reports and studies available from academic, and government sources. The review was conducted primarily through searches in online databases, publications, and other industry resources. The primary focus of this review was to further understand the complications of unmet subsistence needs and effect on high prevalence rates of infections in homeless women. By identifying the factors that increase infection rates, it is the goal of this thesis that future programs and interventions can focus more on what homeless women specifically need.
